David Ortiz went 1-for-4 in his second rehab game with Triple-A Pawtucket and had plenty of opportunity to test his recovering right heel.

In a 7-1 win over Rochester at McCoy Stadium, Ortiz lined to first in the bottom of the first, struck out swinging in the third, popped out in the fifth and singled in a pair of runs in the sixth. He then advanced to second on a fly to center off the bat of Ryan Lavarnway and scored on Drew Sutton's base hit to right.

According to ESPNBoston.com's Joe McDonald, Ortiz struggled a bit rounding third and did not speak with reporters after the game.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said the report he got was a good one.

"Yeah, 1-for-4, ran the bases well, slid into second base," said Farrell, who indicated that Ortiz is still scheduled to play again Sunday.
